North Campus residents provided treats, and South Campus residents constructed a
haunted house. The Residence Life Association and resident advisors were the hosts,
the Resident Student Association bought candy, and Baptist Hospital provided plas-
tic trick-or-treat bags and x-rayed the candy. The athletic department financed the
screen-printing of 200 T-shirts that Hume persuaded Hanes Dye and Finishing Com-

Pumpkin became very popular.
On April 28, more than 500 students, faculty, and staff participated in the
ten-mile March of Dimes Teamwalk Piedmont, Wake Forest’s first, raising more

Lord (Alumni Activities) and Dale Martin (Business) coordinated staff and faculty
Vice President Ken Zick was instructed by President Hearn to review the school’s
judicial system, which the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)

A campus pub, officially known as the “University Clubroom,” opened on Sep-

ter. It was described as a place where students who wanted to remain on campus
could enjoy a private, subdued, sophisticated, and conveniently located facility with
other University community members and their guests. Ironically, at almost exactly
the same time, the University Counseling Center formed a weekly Adult Children
of Alcoholics (ACOA) support group, led by counselors Amanda Zabel and Craig
During the fall semester, a photographer from Playboy came to campus to gather
material for a feature in the May issue, “Girls of the ACC.” A student protest at the
Holiday Inn was broken up by city police twenty minutes after it began because the
group did not have a parade permit. Graduate student Eve Johnson was the lone
Wake Forest representative in the issue.
